Will Amelia Heinle ('Y&R') be rare supporting actress to repeat at Daytime Emmys?

Will Amelia Heinle ('Y&R') be rare supporting actress to repeat at Daytime Emmys?
Amelia Heinle won Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Daytime Emmys for "The Young and the Restless," a victory that came as a surprise to most of our predictors, who had favored either her co-star Elizabeth Hendrickson or Jane Elliot ("General Hospital"). Heinle is pre-nominated again this year, but can she overcome this category's curse against repeat winners? -Break- Predict Daytime Emmys: Repeat for 'Young and Restless,' redemption for 'General Hospital'? Only three women have ever won this award twice: Julia Barr ("All My Children," 1990, 1998), Gina Tognoni ("Guiding Light," 2006, 2008), and Nancy Lee Grahn ("Santa Barbara," 1989; "General Hospital," 2012). None have won it three times, and none have won consecutively. That's not to say winners in this category are doomed. A few others have won as lead actresses after prevailing once in the supporti...

Daytime Emmys mystery: Are Supporting Actress winners cursed?

Repeat winners are commonplace at the Daytime Emmys, but there's a strange anomaly when it comes to the Best Supporting Actress race: only three women have ever won it twice. -Break- Daytime Emmys: A real cliffhanger ... and real soap opera? Julia Barr was the first. As Brooke English on "All My Children" she competed for Emmys eight times spanning 21 years, alternating between categories. Though she lost all six of her lead-acting nominations over the years, she won both of her supporting bids (1990 and 1998), so for her the category proved to be a blessing rather than a curse. Unlike Barr, Gina Tognoni accomplished the feat in just three years. She joined "Guiding Light" as Dinah Marler in 2004 and played the role until the show's cancellation in 2009. During that time she earned three straight nominations for Best Supporting Actress (2006-2008), winning her first and last bids. Nancy Lee Grahn had the long.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Makes ‘All My Children’ Debut This Month

Well, Jeff Zucker did say that CNN was going to more broadly define what news was. It looks like it is going to more broadly define the sort of roles its reporters will play too. With The Lead With Jake Tapper up in the ratings, its host Jake Tapper is going dramatic, with his previously announced role on All My Childrennow set for August 12. The opportunity emerged when Tapper went up to Connecticut to do a piece on the cancelled ABC show’s new online life. Unlike CNN personalities like Wolf Blitzer or Larry King, who often show up on movies and TV shows playing themselves, Tapper will appear on the online soap as Business News Update reporter Spencer Phillips, which sounds almost like a real cable news reporter’s name. His character tries to interview Brooke English (Julia Barr) and Dixie Cooney (Cady McClain). This will be Tapper’s dramatic debut and finale,

Life was going pretty great for All My Children‘s Brooke, before the big bang.

Daytime Emmys 2011: Good, bad

Daytime Emmys 2011: Good, bad
The Daytime Emmy Awards have a unique and often confusing way of determining nominees. Potential contenders must first be selected by their cast to represent the series. Only those so chosen can then submit an episode for consideration by the Daytime Emmy judges. Nelson Branco (TV Guide Canada) tracked down these preliminary lists which contain many surprises about who did and did not enter the race as well as the categories in which they want to contend. The Good The best thing about this list is the variety of ages represented. Several industry veterans have submitted their names including Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady, "Days Of Our Lives,") who won a Primetime Emmy in 1991 (Guest Drama Actress, "The Trials Of Rosie O’Neill") but lost both her Daytime bids back in 1986 and 1987. I love that Julia Barr submitted her name for her publicized return to “All My Children” for a rematch

'All My Children's' Christina Bennett Lind on Bianca: Being gay is 'just one element'

"All My Children" had the first lesbian wedding in daytime TV when Bianca Montgomery married her partner Reese Williams. Eden Riegel won an Emmy in 2005 for her portrayal of Bianca, but has moved on from Pine Valley and Christina Bennett Lind is taking over the role.

When asked if there are any added pressures to portraying such a groundbreaking character on daytime TV, Lind tells Zap2it that "really the only pressure it adds is just making sure to represent this person as a full complete person who happens to be gay -- not making it more complicated than that."

"I feel it's very important to represent any character as a complete human being," Lind continues. "I don't feel a lot of pressure about it because it's just one element of who she is, but I'm really proud to be playing that because it's a very current and exciting place
